The second edition of India by the Nile came to an end. The festival showcased a selection of Indian performing and visual arts, music and films between 1 and 20 April 2014 in three Egyptian cities

After a successful first last year, India by the Nile returned with the second edition and programming even more vibrant than its inaugural year. This year, the festival spanned between 1 and 20 April 2014, offering a wide assortment of artistic activities to audiences in Cairo, Alexandria and Hurghada.

Being a brainchild of Teamwork Arts, India by the Nile is one of the dozens of successful festivals managed by the company across the globe. The festival includes scopes spanning from the performing arts, to music, to literary events, always aiming to entertain the audience with high quality cultural events while creating a fascinating platform for the artists and literary figures to network, cooperate or exchange thoughts.

Teamwork’s presence in Egypt is a result of a partnership between Teamwork, the Embassy of India, the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Tourism, and the Cairo Opera House. The Cairo Opera House is among the several locations that provides stage space to the events taking place during the festival. 

"The festival is about building relationships that will endure long after the [event] is over, long after the people have gone back," Ambassador Suri explained during the festival's opening reception.
